The Hanbok

The Hanbok is the traditional Korean dress.

Lil' Lady was given a Hanbok by her foster mother when we traveled to South Korea to bring her home. It was a bit big on her the first time we attempted to put it on her. She also let us know that under no circumstance were we to put it on her again, especially the head piece.

That was about a two months ago. Yesterday I thought we'd try again before she grew too big to wear it. This time? Well, this time, I believe she thought it was quite awesome!

But enough was enough after mom's hour 45minute photo shoot!

The Appointment Part 3~ Sunday Snapshot

So this guy knew it was coming. For almost three weeks he waited knowing it was his turn next. You see, I scheduled him last for a reason- he loves the anticipation almost as much as the actual thing he's waiting for.

So I felt some pressure in planning his day. It would have to be centered around eating, since that's his thing you know.

Now these aren't pics from his day because like his big brother, he's not into mom "filming" the event so I rounded up some unseen pics from the last few months that I happen to adore.
Yeah, I know. They capture his two favorite things- phyical activity and food.
And since creativity is definitely not his thing I had to throw this one in.

I really enjoyed planning and spending some one on one time with these three. They really have been great siblings to the lil' lady~ I'm so proud of them. And speaking of the lil' lady, well, I was blessed to have been able to spend her first three months here at home with her before going back to work in a week. It'll be hard to go back- I've really loved being home to see her blossom and to see the others off to school and to be there when they get home...maybe someday it can be permanent! Either way, God is Good

The Appointment Part 2

So our oldest had an appointment too, as the first lady had .
I was planning on taking some pics to document the day, but I forgot to replace the battery- which was quite alright with him.

So I'll just pop in a few recent unseen takes from the last few months that I'm quite fond of.
Even though it wasn't just the two of us (lil' lady tagged along) it was awesome to spend some quality time together. Just me and the middle schooler.

This might have to become an annual thing:)

Stay tuned, one more appointment to go!

The Appointment.....

Yep, the first lady had an appointment, or rather, a surprise engagement.

She woke up to find an invitation that included muffins and a movie on the couch

A bubble bath that included a brand new bottle of her first "real lady shampoo", she called it

A stroll through the mall to window shop and catch a peek of the Christmas decorations
A chance to pick your own lunch at the food court

And people watching........always interesting at the Mall of America! Then we headed home to make a yummy dessert,
and paint nails and a turkey

Stay tuned, because in the weeks to come, the boys have appointments too:)
